The following query returns the result '  RIGHTT TRIM' because the leading spaces are not removed. It stops removing characters when it encounters 'M' because 'M' is not in the expr2 argument. Since the expr2 argument is not explicitly specified, the default of a single space is used.

   SELECT RTRIM('  RIGHTT TRIM   ');
